Motor vehicle records (MVRs) allow employers to see your various driving violations, tickets and restrictions. Some people may have questions about MVRs, so here are a few answers to help you better understand why your MVR matters -- and why you need to know what information it includes.
A clean MVR means that you don't have any violations on your record. For example, you don't have speeding tickets, traffic violations or any signs of irresponsible driving. This indicates that you are a safe driver without a history of infractions.
The federal government generally encourages employers to check the MVRs of applicants. The thinking is that responsible (or irresponsible) driving goes hand in hand with responsible (or irresponsible) behavior in other areas of life.
However, if your job involves driving a vehicle, then employers are required to check your records to avoid serious liabilities and maintain the safety of others.
If you know about the information on your MVR, then you can see what employers know about your driving history.
You can also look into what you need to do to get those infractions removed from your record if you know what's on it. There are a variety of ways to clear points or violations from your driving record, whether by disputing inaccuracies or taking a state-approved driver education/improvement course. But first, you need to know what you’re up against.
